The Brazilian thrash act Music Diablo released their brilliant debut album MUSIC DIABLO in Europe in May of 2010. When I heard the band’s music I got really interested and thought that an interview was in order. I hooked up with guitarist André NM so he could cast light over the band and their music. Even though the band’s lead singer is Derrick Green the music doesn’t have a lot in common with Sepultura. If you’re into Brazilian heavy music make sure to check out André’s other band Nitrominds.
Igor Cavalera & Derrick Green of Sepultura
Interviewed in Jan. 1999 by David Lee
SEPULTURA are experiencing both the best and worst of times all in the same instant. The departure of founder member, lead vocalist and brother, Max Cavalera, seemed to be the end of one of metal’s heaviest bands, that is until the survival instincts of the remaining three members took over. A new vocalist was found and work continued on a new album. This is usually where most bands change direction, not the case with SEPULTURA, not in the least. “AGAINST” sounds and feels exactly like SEPULTURA records have always sounded and felt. The record is harsh, brutal and tribal yet maintains a lyrical intelligence that your average death metal band may be able to emulate but could never produce themselves. Along with American vocalist, Derrick Green, the remaining members of SEPULTURA have created one of their finest records which includes the bonus feature of having a track co-written by METALLICA’s Jason Newsted. What exactly will happen next for this now international metal unit is a question that can only be answered with time but one thing is certain, there is a renewed strength and a feeling of power surrounding the band that is infectious. One listen to “AGAINST” and you will be convinced that SEPULTURA is here to stay. I had the chance to speak with both Igor Cavalera and Derrick Green on the phone from New York.
